Message Text: Lenovo today announced the general availability of the Intel-powered Lenovo LePhone K800 in China. In Europe, Orange unveiled the San Diego, a new Android smartphone powered by Intel Inside, which will be available exclusively on Orange from 6th June in the UK and later in France.

The Lenovo LePhone K800 smartphone has adopted a 32nm 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor with Intel Hyper Threading technology for multitasking. It adopts Android 2.3.7 OS, with 1GB RAM and 16GB ROM built-in, a 4.5-inch IPS full-view screen and 400MHz GPU with advanced graphics for support of full HD 1080P video playback and gaming. In addition, the phone brings support for HSPA+ 21Mbs network with the Intel XMM 6260 platform and its 8 million-pixel rear camera can shoot 1080P HD videos. The phone is also equipped with a 1.3 million-pixel front camera and its wireless display technology provides a new option to users, allowing them to extend video and images from the smaller mobile phone screen onto a bigger TV screen.



The LePhone K800 will be available on Lenovo's official website, 360Buy.com, selected Suning & GOME stores and Lenovo retail stores and is priced at approximately RMB 3,299 ($524 USD).

"With Lenovo's launch of LePhone K800, we have successfully realized the idea of expanding Intel's computing strengths into the smartphone market segment in China," said Ian Yang, corporate vice president and president of Intel China. "Intel continues to expand its smartphone product lines and ecosystem, looking for wider spectrum of cooperation. China has become the world's largest smartphone market as the worldwide demands continue to grow."

Europe's first "Intel Inside" smartphone has been unveiled by Orange UK. The handset is the third Intel-based smartphones, following the launch of Lava's XOLO X900 in India in April and the Lenovo LePhone K800 in China.

The 'San Diego' (previously codenamed 'Orange Santa Clara') is a new Android smartphone powered by Intel Inside, which will be available exclusively on Orange from 6th June in the U.K and in France shortly after.

The handset was manufactured by the Chinese firm Gigabyte and it is powered by the Intel Atom processor Z2460 and supports HSPA+ with the Intel XMM 6260 Platform.

The San Diego features High-definition (HD) video along with 1080p video capture, image stabilization and HDMI out. What's more, the handset boasts an 8 mega-pixel camera which features 'Burst' mode allowing it to take 10 pictures in under a second. The San Diego also comes with mobile HD voice and features a 4.03" display, A-GPS and Bluetooth 2.1.



The San Diego will be available for £199.99 ($308) on Orange Pay As You Go, when the company's customers top up by £10 in Orange shops. When they take out the handset on pay as you go, they will also receive a free monthly allowance of 250Mb of mobile data per month for 12 months.

Alternatively, for launch, the handset will be free to Orange's customers who take a 24 month price plan from £15.50 a month until the 25th of July 2012. The package includes 50 any network call minutes, 50 texts, as well as 100MB of mobile data a month.

The new mobile launches marks Intel's entry into a market dominated by chips based on designs by Arm Holdings.

Intel has also partnered with Google's Motorola Mobility division with devices scheduled to launch in the second half of the year.
